Cin5 new pkgs and tars are at:


Tars are build with OpenCV so will have the upgraded FindObj, and new
StylizeObj + PuzzleObj plugins by default.  Pkgs are not built with OpenCV
but you can extract them from that distro's tars.   Below is a copy of the
latest release notes which are also at the above mentioned website as
releasenotes.pdf .
